The video for any song that features Dua Lipa, Missy Elliott, and Madonna is bound to be fashion-filled, but ‘Levitating’ the latest track from Lipa’s Club Future Nostalgia remix disc goes above and beyond. The Will Hooper-directed clip brings the album’s retro rave theme to life with trippy visuals, bright colors, and a wealth of runway goodies chosen by stylists Lorenzo Posococco and June Ambrose. Clad in the best of the fall/winter 2020 collections from the moment she appears on screen, Lipa is electrifying. With her hair dyed hot pink for the occasion and a pair of borrowed-from-the-boys Martine Rose logo print PJ pants, she glided through an apartment filled with analog recorders.
Naturally, it isn’t a Dua Lipa outfit without a little sex appeal, and a python bodysuit added the right amount of e-girl energy. For the outside scenes with boyfriend, Anwar Hadid, Lipa switched things up with a sailor-inspired Miu Miu knit bodysuit. Worn on the runway by Hadid’s sister, Bella, the revealing piece caused a stir during Paris Fashion Week. Navy with white stripes and a Peter Pan collar, it coordinated with Hadid’s comparatively low key t-shirt and jeans.
Lipa wasn’t the only one to have a little fun with the collections, Elliott’s guest spot was all about Versace’s iconic palm print. Instantly recognizable thanks to Jennifer Lopez and the slinky dress she wore to Grammys back in 2000, the pattern has made its way onto everything from scarves to sneakers. Elliott stayed true to her signatures by opting for a lime green denim jacket and baseball cap combo paired with outsize hoop earrings and lengthy box braids. Old school in the best manner, the look only added to the video’s throwback vibe.
